my mom's green chile chicken enchilada's

This recipe is one my mother has done for as long as I can remember. Growing up my mother didn't really cook. But this is one of my favorite meals of hers. She not one to really follow recipe's so I don't have exact measurements for the seasonings, so just go with it! With Fall in the air and fresh hatch green chile feeling the New Mexico air I thought it seems appropriate to share this meal. It's a very easy meal, enjoy!
What you need: a can of white chicken, 505 green chile, a can of cream of chicken soup, a can of cream of potato soup, oregano, garlic powder, corn tortilla's, cheese, and cilantro.
Drain and cut up the chicken, cook in a large deep skillet.
Add your soups: cream of chicken, and cream of potato
Add about 3/4 of the 505 green chile. If you are lucky enough to have some hatch green chile, add that right about now. Mix all together, and add some oregano and garlic powered. I probably do about a tablespoon of each, maybe more.
Layer a square pan with 4 corn tortillas.
Pour in half of your chicken mixture.
Top with cheese.
Cook in a 350* oven for 30 minutes.
Top with cilantro. Serve with rice, black beans, and sour cream.

That looks REALLY good, I can't wait to try it! They actually sell canned Hatch green chile here, so I always stock up when I see it. Yum.
